It was the election itself that provided the surest proof that Israel under Netanyahu's leadership has transitioned to dictatorship
He doesn't even try to hide it anymore. And his people hate him. But they'll vote for him
By voting Bibi you're turning the government into a version of Hamas - anti-democratic, brutal, theocratic, callous, maximalist, mendacious, militarist, racist, manipulatively scapegoating in deflecting blame, fascistic
A visit to a settlement leader whose vision of Israel’s future borders includes parts of Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon and even Iran
To be clear, I am not suggesting that Mort Klein immigrate to Israel. Nor Sheldon Adelson. But if they lose their Bibi, where is their Zionism of America going to put them?
Netanyahu is looking to a viciously supremacist party called Jewish Power to put his re-election campaign over the top
Donald Junior and Senior may be in for the surprise of their lives
I'd be disheartened but for this: I met the one person who should frighten Bibi more than any other in this world
Benjamin Netanyahu is vulnerable. His desperation is showing of late, as is his weariness. It's not a good look for him. But what's the chance he'll lose on April 9?
The Gillette commercial caused me to look again, more closely, at Netanyahu's Iwo Jima moment. That's when it struck me
Without Trump's help, Putin could not do to the United States what the United States is now doing to itself
Every day that Netanyahu chooses Trump and fundamentalism over the pro-democracy, pro-equality, pro-pluralism views of diaspora Jews, is a great day for the Palestinian cause
For Trump and Netanyahu both, the cult of personality is wearing off, like cheap plating revealing inferior metal, faulty construction, and material fatigue
In this part of the world, where Christmas was invented by non-Christian Middle Easterners of color, there are those on warring sides who want all of us to believe that coexistence is a sham, a lie, impossible. Not true
Toxic masculinity, as in: I, as a self-decreed Alpha, can do whatever the Capital Eff I please, to whomever I please, for whatever personal benefit I can extract, with absolutely no fear of negative consequence
I have a serious problem when a leftist sees a pregnant woman and her unborn child as explicitly legitimate targets
In the nationwide strike over violence against women, we saw that the true miracle of Hanukkah is tikvat hinam, baseless optimism, hope without just cause
Let me begin by agreeing with Benjamin Netanyahu. I'm speaking here about one of the prime minister's most fervently stated positions
I'm going to be thinking a lot about war heroes this Thanksgiving week - all the people who, in ways we may never know, often at great personal risk and cost, keep murderous, avoidable, pointless, politically motivated wars from breaking out
The fast helped me see you for the first time, Trump. And why you like Bibi, the kind of man who has a price tag where a conscience was meant to go
Now that results are in, did Jew-hatred pay? A state-by-state breakdown of Republican campaigns that drew condemnation for implied or outright anti-Semitism
Thank you, America's women, for choosing history over pre-history. You made the difference in this election. You saved us
There is a czar in Washington, who has nothing against the Jews as a whole. But one who lets his people know about Jews who, he signals, seek to ruin the lives of Real Americans, that is, his loyal followers

After all, if you can get people to gradually forget about the thousands of children whom you've stripped of their parents, caged, and now packed off to a camp in a desert area outside El Paso, you can get away with anything
It's high time that we who are concerned for Israel's welfare went after the worst of its delegitimizers, those who contribute the most to the criticism of Israel as a repressive, illiberal regime
